Microsoft's Game Division Doubles Operating Income
EDD reported revenues of $3.698 billion compared to revenues of $2.381 billion in the same quarter the previous year. EDD reported operating income for the quarter of $679 million compared to $365 million in the same quarter the previous year. Microsoft primarily credited the release of the Kinect motion controller for the surge in revenues. During the quarter, Microsoft shipped 6.3 million Xbox 360 consoles and 8 million Kinect sensors (that's "shipped," not sold), with increased revenues outpacing increased costs.
